  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small baking pumpkin or butternut squash, peeled, seeded and chopped into bite-sized cubes

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Pour olive oil into large skillet. Add squash; cook and stir over MEDIUM-HIGH heat about 5 minutes or until golden brown. Add onion and thyme to skillet; season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook and stir 2 minutes or until onions are translucent. Remove from heat; stir in cranberries. Cool.
